Thank you for your website. Real people are the real inspiration. Living in the VERY rural midwest my style and creativity has gone through a period of apathy. Your website is a breath of fresh air – a reminder, portal, and more importantly, motivation to get my groove back. Thanks for the inspiration!
i really like her smile and at first i was like, ‘yuck this outfit is gross’ then i had a closer look and was like, ‘alright’ then i was like, ‘nah gross’ i mean, check out her gross pants with the zips at the bottom like a nerd and the sickening overly large jacket/shirt/vest combo. to me this outfit just seems to almost hit, but then misses. i really like the idea of wearing a cape though
i agree with theo… totally gross. the sweater/shirt combo is awkward, the pants are like diapers (that front zipper? ack!), the jacket is too long….
the shoes, bag and hat are great though. i just think, when you get to the age of this women, you can’t be this sloppy and make it work, even if you DO have a great body, expensive accessories and a fabulous personality.
a great shot and great style. i agree with theo that it is hit and miss in as much as the big zip on her crotch reminds me of an appendage, and the coat is way too big, but for me it is a winner, because the subject is one of those few individuals who can make clothes come togehter well (even when they shouldnt).
its interesting, its textured, its not ‘designer’ or fashion (i wouldnt have a clue who the bag was ‘designed’ by… does it matter???, theres always lots of comments like that on this blog: ‘where can i get/purchase that piece?’, ‘who is she wearing?’, yawn).
this woman would make a floral frock and lavender cardy her own. i love it.
It’s not entirely there – zip on pants definitely a detraction – but I really like the proportions. In truth, it might simply be that I like your photography – great colours and diagonal with the scarf. Hmm…
Somehow she knows what she’s doing (bag, shoes, scarf tell you as much), but even though I think the oversized jacket and whatever is going on underneath it make her look messy, I think she does it no purpose, to balance the outfit. Lots of little details she put in that were thought up. But I still think she’d look better more out together. But hey, maybe that’s why she’s such an individualist, she doesn’t want to be put together!
Nice photo, Sart. But really now, you’ve got to be joking, right? I am having a hard time believing this works on any conceivable level, IMVHO. The blanket around her shoulders makes her look like a little kid dressing up as a superhero. And why is she wearing a tea cosy on her head? Baffling.
Yes, freeonboard, she is Michela Gattermayer, the director of the italian fashion magazine “Velvet”. That long scarf looks dangeorus: anybody remember the tragic destiny of Isadora Duncan? better safe than fashion…
This I love, because it works, but unlike some of the other great ensembles seen here, sit eems so intuitively and unselfconsciously put together.
Maybe it’s just the look in her eye which conveys this to me, but I like a wearer who seems to be saying “Maybe it’s perfect, or maybe it isn’t, but my concern is really just the happiness in trying something, more than the score society gives me”. A kind of DIY spirit shows through.
She Rocks. How many more well put together photos must we see. Simply put…she is different…and that is what works. Awwee to be fearless, not to have a care in the world of what the next person thinks. She’s dressing for herself. She loves those pants and that hat…that’s all that matters. To me she is a woman who romantizes the past and future. Meshing it so well together.
HAPPY FACE. This photo made me smile. Apparently this happy soul is enjoying her life’s journey. I think she would make a party sizzle. Pure joy! _She is wearing her clothes; not her clothes wearing her.
